Description

Flight Path Area on Bridge Mountain has at least ten quality routes rated from 5.6 to 5.10-, mixed and trad. Most of the routes are broken up into a couple smaller areas, where groups of four routes share common belay/rappel anchors. This is ideal if you'd like to lead up a moderate route and then set up top roping on several more difficult ones. The routes face east and only get sun in the morning. Nearby routes exist to the north in Gemstone Gully and to the south in Stick Gully.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

From the Pine Creek parking lot, the Flight Path Area is located on Bridge Mountain, well to the right of Straight Shooter Wall. An approach could be made via Straight Shooter, but involves bushwhacking. The preferred way involves taking the Pine Creek trail west, toward Mescalito, then hanging a right (north) about a half mile up the trail, on to the Dale Trail. About a quarter mile up the Dale Trail, which parallels the massif, as you drop into a streambed, look for a climbers trail that branches left, toward the crags. This trail is well marked by cairns. Look at Flight Path from here and observe the weakness in the red cliff band below it. Follow the trail up the cliff to the area. This approach takes 30 minutes.

Excellent wall(s) of moderate trad. It's never crowded, and I have seen sheep every single time I have climbed there. Dec 8, 2016
